IF YOU WANT TO BE IN HEART OF THE ACTION
Posted Jan 30, 2017
I must start with giving my age (67). My two sisters (66 and 51) and I stayed four nights at Congress Hotel. It is definitely in the HOT SPOT area of So.Beach. Music everywhere which was great and fun.....until we tried to get to sleep. Lots of noise till all hours of the night (sometimes until 5am). The bed was very comfortable, but the sofa bed was a disaster. It pretty much collapsed, so we had to put "mattress" on the floor, so sofa was useless. Shower was interesting. It was too hot and impossible to regulate. There is one small closet and no dressers. No place to sit inside. Balcony is facing air conditioners and buildings and is loud. Free drink at pool was worth the price. We could hardly choke them down (awful!). The little kitchen was really nice. Great frig and microwave, sink, etc. Staff was wonderful and very helpful. When we asked for supplies, they brought them up promptly. All in all, we would not stay there again, but it wasn't "horrible" in most regards. Just not great either.
